Psychologist Can’t Be One Sided Expert

CHILD CUSTODY – EVIDENCE – PSYCHOLOGICAL EXAM

Kelly v. Kelly
No. 46748
(Idaho Supreme Court, September 10, 2019)
The magistrate court abused its discretion by permitting husband to retain psychologist to perform a parenting time evaluation as his expert, in divorce proceeding when child custody was a contested issue; parenting time evaluators can be selected only by stipulation of the parties or by appointment of the court, in either case, the chosen expert must be neutral, and not beholden to either side, and psychologist was ultimately paid over $105,000 to conduct the parenting time evaluation on behalf of husband. Further, the magistrate court abused its discretion when it ordered wife to undergo a psychological evaluation and counseling, as recommended by psychologist, husband’s expert, during child custody portion of divorce trial; a judge had no authority to order medical or psychological treatment in a child custody case unless there was direct testimony that such treatment would be in the best interest of the child, and there was no language indicating a psychological evaluation was in the best interests of child

Francis Sanchez: It is pretty sad when individuals in control abuse the power they are given. The victims that they hurt are the powerless and they are afraid to tell their stories.  Lets continue to be the voice of these victims and erase abuse of innocent victims.

Psychologist (falsely) opines that alienating parents are most often mothers

Dr. Alissa Sherry opines that alienating parents are most often mothers (see image below in court testimony given under oath).

” … most of the alienation cases I’ve seen have been mostly mothers, but I’ve had a handful where the father was the alienator”  (note this is someone who has said that they have done hundreds of cases and she admits that only a handful have shown the father is the alienator?)

She gives no valid and reliable scientific evidence to support her opinion.  This is gender bias against women. In fact, research on alienation most recently from Joan Meier and others indicates that alienation is not most often mothers.

How can a custody evaluator with a preconceived known gender bias perform unbiased custody evaluations?  It is no surprise that she sides against the mothers around 80-85% of the time in family court cases.

This transcript was provided to the TSBEP in a previous complaint years ago and that complaint was dismissed.
